Subtitle: Dear Diary, Why is Liz Making Me Do This?
Straight to number 8, with a bullet! We've made bullet journals people, or at least one of us has. Find out which one, what a bullet journal actually is (maybe?), what Liz regularly eats for breakfast and what our very special guest did on March 16, 2017. Plus we talk a lot about Chex mix juice.
Keywords/possible drinking game: Chex mix juice, my monthly, dear diary
In a shaker combine:
Juice of one lime
15 mint leaves
1 Tbsp sugar
4 oz Bulleit bourbon
Crush the berries a little bit with a muddle or wooden spoon.
Add ice and shake vigorously.
Pour over ice and top with a splash of ginger beer.
The official Bullet Journal
This is a good place to start. You can read about the basics but I found the most helpful thing was to watch a couple videos so you can really see things put in action. This is the video from the official site and I also found this video very helpful.
We both bought fancy pants Leuchtturm notebooks, the dotted variety, which come with prenumbered pages and a dedicated index. Also, this is just a very nice notebook. Did I mention it was fancy pants?
PS, I highly encourage you to click the link above. This fancy pants notebook comes in a wide array of fancy pants colors. It is a sight to behold.
I (Liz) also treated myself to the following accoutrements:
And now, the moment you've been waiting for:
Complete with wine stain.
And for real people, I will make a video of this shit, just say the word! I only need the slightest bit of encouragement.
Grilled Shredded Wheat
At the beginning of the episode Liz talked about her dad's recipe for grilled shredded wheat which he thought should be included as a family recipe. While it's not Liz's recipe it is definitely a good, wholesome, comforting breakfast and if you're in the mood for something hella old timey you can't go wrong with shredded wheat! And Liz was correct when she said credit for this recipe actually goes to her dad's dad. It was one of the few dishes in his repertoire and we must give him his due!
